Chandigarh: Hindutva fountainhead Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) has just concluded its annual meeting of its highest decision-making body Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) in Rajasthan’s Naugaur.
Bhayyaji Joshi of the RSS said that the Hindtva body had become more powerful in the last few years and it was not because of the BJP government at the Centre.
He said, “Modi ji came to power in 2014, but the Sangh has been on the rise since 2010. Between 2012 and 2015, we added more than 10,000 shakhas. Our rise is not linked to us being in government. ”
He also announced that the RSS had now dumped its famous Khaki shorts in favour of brown ‘full-pants.’
“We’ve done away with khakhi shorts. Our new uniform will be brown trouser now. We’ve take this decision to respect the changing time. Trousers are more common in normal life. We are people who move with times. So we had no hesitation(change in dress code),” said Joshi.
Describing it as a “major change”, Joshi said, according to a India Today report, “Pants are a regular feature in today’s social life, so we took our decision accordingly.”
Even before the announcement was made, trolls had gone online, with cynics saying that not the dress code but the RSS’ thinking needs a change.
